The Redlegs are averaging almost six runs a game over their last six games. What is even more impressive is that the Reds were shut out by Carlos Zambrano in one of those games.
Any way you look at it, the offense is picking up…and didn’t it happen right around the time Ryan Freel began leading off more often?
So, what do you think? Are the hitters waking up? And shouldn’t we be justifiably excited, since the pitching (other than Belisle) continues to be pretty solid?
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
